I hadn't thought of it that way, but that's not a bad comparison... that, or shopping the bargain bin at a brick & mortar store.

The five volume Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy is available at Kobo UK for £11.52, and the current coupon code BookRiot50 will take that down to £5.76 for the omnibus. Pretty good value! If I didn't have it already from the late lamented Fictionwise, I'd probably be getting it myself.

I just bought it to replace my boxed edition.

It's DRM-free as well, for people for whom that makes a difference.

Sounds like you need the GreaseMonkey script I wrote for just this purpose! Works with Firefox, Chrome or Safari and adds the price at Amazon in red (free) or blue text. Perfect for scanning a thread, you can quickly see if a book is still on sale or not available in your area. Even tells you if you've already purchased a book!

You can install the script from http://userscripts.org/users/476972/scripts. Pick the version corresponding to the Amazon store you use (I must merge them all one day). Any questions or suggestions, ask at the script's thread here.

Personally, the DRM status is highly relevant. Sure I could have done without knowing that this replaces a boxed set, but it's worth reading to see when I can support products unencumbered by DRM. Especially for books sold by Kobo, who seem to have a severe aversion to telling customers anything pertinent, like what format the book is in.

Year Zero: A Novel
by Rob Reid

is $0.99 at

Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Year-Zero-Nove...1145145&sr=8-2

Kobo http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/year-zero

Below is the blurb:
Low-level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it’s a prank, not an alien encounter, when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office. But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced (if bumbling) extraterrestrials. The entire cosmos, they tell him, has been hopelessly hooked on American pop songs ever since “Year Zero” (1977 to us), resulting in the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang and bankrupting the whole universe. Nick has just been tapped to clean up this mess before things get ugly. Thankfully, this unlikely galaxy-hopping hero does know a thing or two about copyright law. Now, with Carly and Frampton as his guides, Nick has forty-eight hours to save humanity—while hoping to wow the hot girl who lives down the hall from him.

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson shows as $2.93 at Diesel for me. Not discounted at Amazon and Kobo.

Does that mean only books published by oneself (the poster,) or books self-published by any author?

The Freebies Forum is not a place for authors to self-promote.

We have one full forum dedicated for that free service. Any self-promotion outside of that forum is considered spam.
